The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition exhibition photographic slides
Scope and Contents
Views of the temporary exhibition The Endurance: Shakleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition, held at the American Museum of Natural History, April 10-October 11, 1999. The exhibition featured more than 150 compelling photographs by expedition photographer Frank Hurley in the most extensive presentation ever mounted on this dramatic journey. Many of the images were on view for the first time, displayed alongside diary excerpts and expedition artifacts, including the actual lifeboat used in the epic boat journey, as well as rare color images and film footage by Hurley. The exhibition also included sections on the journey's historic and geographic context, and an immersive computer simulation on navigation.
